Opera for You

 Opera and Schools 

Dear Teachers

The aim of JETZT! – Oper für dich is to reach out, in many different ways, and involve the broadest possible audience: from people taking an interest in opera for the first time, regular opera goers, small children, school children, students & adults.

Set out below are events which you can book tickets for and share an unforgettable and informative time with the children in your care. Subscribe to our half yearly newsletter and keep up to date about dates and events on offer via: opernprojekt@buehnen-frankfurt.de

Our Opera for Children performances take place in the mornings in the Holzfoyer at Oper Frankfurt.
